R Street Design Guidelines
Design Guidelines for the R Street Corridor are found in Section 4 of the City of Sacramento’s Central City Urban Design Plan. These guidelines provide development direction for private property, including buildings, landscaping, open space, and parking areas. Design of the public realm, or areas within the public right-of-way, are also included in this document and may include guidelines for pedestrian pathways, vehicular lanes, lighting, and street furniture.
The Capitol Area Development Authority adopted (October 27, 2006) a special set of design guidelines for its portion of the R Street Corridor generally between 9th and 19th Streets. These design guidelines were adopted into the Sacramento Central City Neighborhood Design Guidelines by the City Council on September 5, 2006. The City did not adopt the entire CADA Urban Design and Development Plan but included only portions of the document into Central City Urban Design Plan and General Plan.
